Fletcher “Buster“ Brush, 59, of Salisbury, passed away peacefully on Friday, Nov. 7, 2008, with Jeanette, his loving wife of 37 years, and family by his side. Born on Nov. 5, 1949, in Middlebury, weighing in at ten pounds ten ounces, he affectionately received his nickname when his father walked in and proclaimed, “that's a big Buster.“ Buster is predeceased by his father and mother, Howard E. and Ivis (Dayton) Brush. He is survived by his wife Jeanette (Hartman) Brush of Salisbury; his sister Carole B. Cummings and her husband Michael of Ripton; his brother Howard W. “Skip“ Brush and his wife Cynthia of Middlebury; his brother William L. “Billy“ Brush of Middlebury; his aunt Betty Gerow-Elmore of Ripton; his uncle Donald R. Dayton Sr. of Florida; several nieces; nephews; greatnieces; great-nephews; and numerous cousins. Buster was blessed to live in the small community of Vermont where he worked at Co-operative Insurance Companies since 1980, in posts from claims adjuster to customer relations manager to VP of Education and Community Relations. He was a member and past president of Middlebury Rotary Club where he exemplified “Service Above Self.“ He currently served on the boards of the National Bank of Middlebury, Youth Safety Council of Vermont and Middlebury Community House. He was a core group member and chair of Outreach and Function Group with the Vermont Strategic Highway Safety Plan, the Make-A-Wish Foundation Golf Tournament Committee co-chair, president of the Salisbury Historical Society, chairman of the Salisbury Village Cemetery Restoration Project and founder of UnderBrush.org, a website indexing Vermont cemeteries.
